About us

Dr. Georg Wille is an FMH specialist in surgery, with a focus on endocrine surgery (EBSQ), that is, surgery to the endocrine glands. Dr. Wille demonstrates this qualification as a thyroid surgeon with multiple years experience and a great number of surgical procedures in this field. His medical career of over 20 years includes positions at highly specialized and renowned hospitals and has established him as an expert in specialized thyroid surgery. Dr. Wille treats his patients in a comfortable atmosphere at his Endocrine Surgery practice in Zurich. Dr. Wille possesses outstand specialist knowledge of the current state of the art. Almost a thousand thyroid gland and parathyroid gland procedures, which he himself has performed over 10 years, testify to his preeminent practical expertise. During his advanced training at the Pisa University Hospital, Dr. Wille mastered the minimal invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgery techniques developed there, which are performed with video assistance. These camera-guided surgical techniques have significant advantages: along with the particularly gentle procedure as such, the surgeon has a better view of the detailed anatomy of the neck region. As a result, skin incisions can remain very small and heal almost invisibly with a good cosmetic result. As well, postoperative pain is reduced and the hospital stay is shorter.

In order for his patients to undergo their hospital stay and the surgery safely and with the greatest possible sense of wellbeing, Dr. Wille cares for them entirely individually in his practice. In detailed consultations and preliminary examinations, Dr. Wille creates thoughtful therapeutic concepts for the respective needs of his patients. Dr. Wille focuses on treating conditions of the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands and the adrenal glands, another important endocrine gland. Changes in these small, but important for quality of life organs affect the metabolism and the hormonal system. An increased or diminished function of the thyroid gland is often accompanied by a wide variety of symptoms. Frequent thyroid gland findings are generally benign hardening and nodules, which require a thorough medical clarification. Enlargement of the thyroid gland, so-called goiter or struma, and thyroid cancer are also among the conditions treated in Dr. Wille’s practice. The thyroid specialist possesses long-standing experience with disorders of this delicate organ and has the surgical flair whenever surgery is recommended. Dr. Wille takes the time to consider each clinical history individually for the wellbeing of his patients and a reliable basis of trust between doctor and patient. Close collaboration with specialist endocrinology colleagues facilitates the holistic patient care and rounds off Dr. Wille’s treatment spectrum. Dr. Wille counsels his patients extensively and is available for enquiries.
